Sweet Potato Fries

Who doesn’t love sweet potato fries!? (If you are ever in the Denver/Boulder area, you must, I repeat, MUST go to the Oskar's Blues Brewery. Their SPF are da bomb....but not as healthy as this one.)

This recipe is so easy, it’s become a staple in our house. And with summer here, this makes a great side at any BBQ.

2-3 medium sized sweet potatoes
Olive oil
Dried thyme and rosemary
Salt and pepper (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Skin potatoes (optional)
Cut potatoes to desired thickness and size
Drizzle olive oil to coat fries
Add rosemary and thyme
Add salt and pepper if desired

Line in a single layer on a greased baking sheet(s).
Bake for 20-22 minutes.
Flip and bake for another 20-22 minutes.

I’ve also made beet fries and they are yummy! You could really try this recipe with any root veggie.



  1. will try! and a shout out to full at last

  2. Cool! Thanks for the shout out to Erin!

  3. Why oh why did I never have SPF at Oskars while I was living in Denver?!?! And now I don't even live in CO anymore. This is most unlucky for me. Boo.

    But, I will try your fries tomorrow. I bought sweet taters at the store today while my daughter SCREAMED bloody murder in the cart during the entire excursion. I just went about my shopping as if everything was just dandy :)

  4. I'm thinking maybe put the oven at 450 to make them more crispy..was just reading other recipes on the internet.
